Oh Canada!

I used to think it was strange for complete strangers to connect in any meaningful way over the internet, and I remeber being absolutely shocked when I heard of the first everquest wedding. The truth though is that many people connect with each other online in the same way that people win the real world connect. I’ve met a few freinds online that have carried over to real life freinds and my buddies Sabotage and Tuggs are two of them.

I met both of them in an ill though out jaunt to check out Vangaurd (Shudder…), and followed them back to WoW once we wised up.  After a few months I found out that Sabotage was moving to New York, near where I live and as it turned out  3 minutes away from me,. After about a year of him living he we’ve become close freinds and thats where Tuggs comes in.

Today I’m hopping on a plane at JFK to meet the bastard for the first time, he lives in Canada and I think it’ll be exciting trip.

So in the end all my blabbering means there will be no Posts until at least Sunday!

Have a Happy Fourth of July!!

The Return

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

Well I’m back from a bit of an Age of Conan Sabbatical, and I’m hunkering down for Wrath of the Lich King.

For me preparing for Wotlk really comes down to two things:

1) What will help me level fastest.

2) What kinds of things will carry over to level 80, and still matter.

So far this week I’ve repaced herbalism with engineering and gotten that to 375 on my paladin. I’ve also started getting together all the mats to grind my blacksmithing to 375, but I’ll hold off on that until Wotlk.

Once Wotlk is released i plan to mine the hell out of Northrend then drop mining altogether for blacksmithing once I have all the mats I need to get my Blacksmithing and Engineering to the Max level. I think that would give me the jump start into raids and instances in Wotlk.

As far as my Shadow priest goes, he’s pretty self sufficient with Enchanting and Tailoring. I’m currently trying to get the Deathfrost Enchant from Lord Ahune and that is really about it.

A few of my RL friends have gotten together and we’ve restarted my old guild <Facing Worlds>.

<Facing Worlds> was great at ten man instances and what really broke our group up was 25 man content. We never really found another guild that ran as smoothly, and being late to the expansion (due to an ill advised jaunt to Vanguard) really put us behind the curve. In the end most of my friends took a break and haven’t returned til now.

The guild dynamic  will change though with Wotlk. With there being many more ten man instances I think that there will be a lot of ten man focused progression guilds and it seems like a good idea to me.

Its all optimistic and not only am I not burned out any more but I dare say I’m a but excited :)
